Sheriffs receive promotions at the Raleigh County Courthouse

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – The Raleigh County Courthouse hosts a deputy sheriff promotional ceremony for officers who are moving up in position for their time and dedication to the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Department.

The sheriffs that are being promoted include Ricky L. Talley, Jr. moving up from Deputy to Corporal, Brent B. Milam moving from Deputy to Corporal, Brian S. White from Corporal to Sergeant and Roger L. Bircham Jr. moving up from Sergeant to Lieutenant.

“I guess you could say it means we are being recognized for the work that we do and the sacrifices that we make,” says Brian White, a newly promoted Sergeant with the department. “A promotion comes with the responsibility of watching over the other guys, leading and guiding them, and trying to set a good example for everybody to follow.”
